Destiny 2: Season of Opulence Stream Recap and Impressions

The final bit of content for Year 2 of Destiny 2 dropped a few weeks ago: the Season of Opulence. The big attraction this time around for all Annual Pass holders is the new six-player matchmade activity, The Menagerie. This "raid-lite" experience challenges your fireteam to progress through a series of objectives before facing a boss at the end. All of that is pretty fun, but it gets better: your rewards for completing all this is to "choose your own loot."

Sometimes, what is best in life, is to prepare sturdy defenses

Conan Unconquered Stream Recap and Impressions

What is best in life? Well, Nick and Jason decided to see for themselves in Conan Unconquered. This survival RTS from Petroglyph (ex-Westwood devs and the team responsible for the 8-Bit series and Grey Goo) puts players in a slightly different role than most other games in this genre. Rather than building up a base and a massive force to roll over your opponent, you're trying to build up defenses to prevent being overwhelmed by the approaching hordes.

Dauntless Stream Recap and Updated Impressions

It's been almost two years since we first wrote up some early impressions of Phoenix Labs' Dauntless, and there have been a number of updates and improvements in that time. The biggest, of course, is the recent release on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with cross-play/cross-progression between BOTH of those consoles (whaaaaaaaaat?!) and the PC version. Mike, Nick, and Jason hopped back into the game this week to see how things are looking in the world of the Shattered Isles.

Destiny 2 Joker's Wild Stream Recap and Impressions

The 6th season of content for Destiny 2 kicked off a couple weeks ago. Dubbed the "Season of the Drifter," Annual Pass owners get new content via "Joker's Wild." This includes two new modes to play (Gambit Prime and Reckoning), a new bounty along with some lore via the "Invitations of the Nine," a new exotic (everyone's favorite/hated hand cannon, Thorn), and a new questline tied to swearing your loyalty to the Vanguard or the Drifter. As most of that content has now been made available, we decided to hop back in and check out how all of it stacks up.

Look, we try to highlight the occasional good

Anthem Stream Recap and Impressions

BioWare's Anthem is a video game that was released in February 2019. Part of me wants to stop there and just leave this as a purely factual post. The other part has some things to say about the aforementioned game. In the span of about a week and a half, it has become one of the most talked about releases so far this year, but not exactly for positive reasons. For this week's "Let's Play Co-Op," Mike and I did our best to talk about the good, the bad, and the co-op, though if I'm honest, it is weighted towards "the bad."

God Eater 3 Stream Recap and Impressions

The latest entry in the God Eater franchise, God Eater 3, is something of a departure from the previous games. Bandai Namco changed the developer - Shift was responsible for the first two titles and Marvelous Inc, who worked on Soul Sacrifice, was brought on for this one - in order to "bring in a breath of fresh air" and rework many of the systems that they felt had become overly complex. The result is, in my opinion, the best God Eater game to date and the one that is the most approachable for newcomers (if you're ok with some anime).
